==================================================================
Game play Instructions
==================================================================

CONQUEST MODE
The goal of CONQUEST mode is to reduce your opponent's tickets to
zero. The current numbers of tickets are shown above the MINIMAP.
These tickets are a pool of lives shared by everyone on the same
team. There are two ways to reduce an opponent's pool of tickets:
kill enemy soldiers or capture control points.


DEFAULT KEYS:
Forward/Backward: W/S
Side step: A/D
Walk: SHIFT
Crouch: Lft CTRL
Prone: Z
Jump: SPACE
Enter/Exit a Vehicle: E
Select weapon from the inventory: 1-6 OR mouse wheel up/down
Opens a parachute: 9
Pick up kit (change current class): G
Lower / raise landingcraft hatch: Up / Down arrows
Bring the respawn interface down: RETURN
Go back to the menu: ESCAPE


THE CLASSES:

SCOUT
The SCOUT KIT is equipped with a long-range sniper rifle, which
allows him to really reach out and touch someone at a distance.
He can also spot for teammates who are in an artillery positions
(vehicle or ship). To do this equip yourself with the binocular
and press the FIRE button. This will place a camera for a set
amount of time, which your teammate can use to place his shots.
You can only spot on one location at a time. In this demo you
can guide coastal-guns and the rear guns on the destroyer by
using this system.

Inventory:
1) knife
2) pistol
3) sniper rifle
4) grenades
5) binoculars


ASSAULT
The ASSAULT KIT is equipped with an assault rifle, which is best
when taking out enemy infantry. Due to the guns recoil it is most
accurate from a stationary position, either crouching or prone.

Inventory:
1) knife
2) pistol
3) assault rifle
4) grenades


AT
The ANTI-TANK KIT is equipped with an anti-vehicle weapon. Most
vehicles have their heaviest armor in the front, so the best
tactic when attacking is to hit them in the flank or rear. Be
careful of enemy infantry.

Inventory:
1) knife
2) pistol
3) rocket launcher
4) grenades


MEDIC
The MEDIC KIT is equipped with a very effective short-range sub-
machinegun. However, the true value of the medic is the ability
to heal teammates. To do that, equip yourself with the MediKit,
get near the wounded teammate and press the FIRE button. Keep an
ear open for cries of "MEDIC!". If you look at the MINIMAP you will
see a red cross icon indicating the wounded teammate's location.

Inventory:
1) knife
2) pistol
3) sub machine gun
4) grenades
5) medikit


ENGINEER
The ENGINEER KIT is equipped with a standard issue rifle. The
rifle has heavy stopping power but a long reload and limited
ammo capacity. The true value of the engineer is his ability
to repair vehicles and plant explosives, both landmines and
demolition packs. To repair a vehicle, equip yourself with the
wrench and press FIRE while near the damaged vehicle. You can
also deactivate landmines using your wrench. To detonate the
demolition packs after you have laid them out press the ALTERNATE
FIRE button to equip the detonator. Press FIRE to detonate.
Keep your ears open for teammates who need repairs. They will
appear in your MINIMAP as a wrench icon.

Inventory:
1) knife
2) pistol
3) rifle
4) demolition pack
5) mines
6) wrench


THE VEHICLES:
in a vehicle you can switch positions by using your inventory
keys 1-6.

AIRCRAFT CARRIER
The AIRCRAFT CARRIER is close to supplanting the Battleship's
supremacy on the high seas. With its brood of dive-bombers and
fighters it can launch attacks outside of the Battleship's range.
It can also protect itself from air attack. The LCVPs at the rear
of the ship can be used to make beach landings.

DESTROYER
The DESTROYER is a multi-purpose ship. Its primary role is as an
anti-submarine escort, although in this demo you don't have to
worry about submarines. You can also use its cannons for shore
bombardment. It has limited defenses against air attacks. The
LCVP's at the rear of the ship can be used to make beach landings.

FIGHTER
The FIGHTER is the fastest and most maneuverable vehicle in the
sky. It combines excellent air cover and decent ground attack.

DIVE-BOMBER
The DIVE BOMBER is a 2-person vehicle which provides excellent
ground attack with decent air cover. An empty back-gunner
position is useful when a teammate needs a quick pick-up.

LIGHT TANK
The LIGHT TANK is an infantryman's worst nightmare. A driver-
controlled cannon and coaxial machinegun coupled with a cupola-
mounted machinegun for anti-air and anti-infantry makes this
two-person vehicle very versatile. Be careful of Heavy Tanks or
hidden anti-tank infantry.

APC
The APC vehicle is one of the most versatile vehicles on the
battlefield. It can provide light armor protection for up to 6
soldiers as well as anti-air and anti-infantry support from it's
machinegun. Also, any soldier seated in the passenger compartment
will automatically be healed and their ammo will be replenished.
It will also replenish the ammo of any vehicle within a 10 meter
radius of the APC.

SCOUT CAR
This 2-person vehicle is the fastest on land. It's also the least
armored. It is best used to quickly penetrate the opponent's line
or for those quick getaways.

STATIONARY MG
The STATIONARY MG presents a difficult defensive position to
attacking units. It can cut down any unprotected infantry within
seconds. It is ineffective against armored tanks. You will also
want to be careful, as the machinegun is prone to over-heating.

ENTER/EXIT VEHICLE
When you are near a VEHICLE/STATIONARY WEAPON, press E to enter/
exit vehicle


==================================================================
Improving Gameplay Performance
==================================================================

Some machines will benefit from experimenting with your Network/
Video/Sound options:

INTERNET/NETWORK PERFORMANCE

THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT FOR A GOOD INTERNET PERFORMANCE!

- Before joining an Internet game you should check the settings
under CONNECTION SPEED in the Internet tab to make sure that
you have the appropriate connection type set. If you experience
lag or jitter while on an Internet game, try setting your
CONNECTION SPEED to the next lowest setting.

- JOINING MULTIPLAYER GAMES:
To get the best performance given your computer we recommend
you follow these guidelines:

HARDWARE
Minimum system - Join servers that have up to 20 players

Recommended systems - Join servers that have up to 32 players

High end systems - Join servers that have up to 32 players

BANDWIDTH
Modem users - Join games with a maximum of 16 players.

ISDN users - Join games with a maximum of 24 players.

ADSL/Cable users - Join games with a maximum of 32 players.

T1/LAN users - Join games with a maximum of 32 players.


VIDEO SETTINGS

- Systems with 128MB of RAM should always run the game with
video settings set to "LOW".

- From the Main Menu choose the "Options" menu. Then select
the "Video" menu, select "Texture Quality" and experiment with
the slider in order to find the best setting for your computer.
You can also try lowering the "Graphics Quality" and "Effect
Quality" in order to meet your machines level of performance.

- Also from the "Video" menu, uncheck the "SHADOWS" check box.
This will prevent the game from creating dynamic shadows for
soldiers and vehicles and should improve performance.

- Also from the "Video" menu, uncheck the "LIGHTMAPS" check box.
This will prevent the game from adding detailed shadows on the
buildings, which should improve your performance.

- Also from the "Video" menu, uncheck the "ENVIRONMENT MAPPING"
check box. This will remove the environmental effects on water,
vehicles and weapons. This should improve your performance.

- Also from the "Video" menu, try to reduce your view distance
in order to increase performance. This will impact on gameplay
since your opponents will see you before you can spot them.

- Also from the "Video" menu, check the "ALTERNATIVE SPAWN INTER-
FACE" which will give you a black background when you bring up
the spawn interface while playing instead of keeping the game
view in the background. This improves the mouse sense in that
menu on slower machines.

- Try reducing your video resolution to 640x480 in your "Video"
menu. The lower the resolution, the easier it is for your
computer to run the game.

- From the "Video" menu you can try to lower your color depth from
32 to 16 bit by picking your desired resolution with the color
depth of 16 (800x600x16).


SOUND SETTINGS

- From the "Sound" menu you can try to lower your audio quality
by checking the 11khz checkbox. Also test with lowering
the number of channels used to 24 or 16.

- Systems with 128MB of RAM should always use 11khz.

- From the "Sound" menu you can try to lower your sound detail
to "MEDIUM" or "LOW". This will prioritize sounds harder so
that only the core sounds of the game get played.

- From the "Sound" menus second page you can activate "HARDWARE
ACCELERATION" given that your soundcard supports this. This
should improve your performance.


MODEM USERS

- Software compression can impact performance for online games.
We advise that you turn all software compression off when
playing Battlefield 1942 over a modem.


IN GAME

- By always keeping your command interface hidden (toggle with F8)
you should improve your performance while playing. If you still
want to leave it up you can make sure that you have turned your
Radio Tooltips off in the "Options" > "Customize". This should
give you better performance. Both of these changes will most be
most noticeable on low end systems.


==================================================================
DEDICATED SERVER
==================================================================

We highly recommend Battlefield servers to be run on dedicated
server platforms. Currently, the best performance is on a machine
with the following specifications:

8-player
WinOS/800Mhz processor/128MB RAM/ADSL connection

16/32-player
WinOS/1Ghz processor/256MB RAM/T1 connection

As always if you can increase any of the above hardware you will
improve your overall gameplay experience.

------------------------------------------------------------------

The following functionality exists in the Dedicated Server

GENERAL:
- Server Name: set the name which will display in the in-game
browser window.
- Password: set a password to allow people to connect to your
server. NOTE: DO NOT USE ANY SPACES IN YOUR PASSWORD.
- Time Limit: Set the time limit for certain game-modes. In
CONQUEST ASSAULT if the timer reaches zero the defender will
win. In CONQUEST HEAD-ON if the timer reaches zero the side
with the most tickets will win.
- Score Limit: Set the score limit for certain game-modes.
- Max number of player: Set the maximum number of players you want
to allow on your server. NOTE: EXPERIMENT WITH LOWER SETTINGS
DEPENDING ON YOUR SERVER HARDWARE AND BANDWIDTH.
- Rounds per level: This determines how long each map will play
before the round ends. NOTE: AUTOSWITCH TEAMS ONLY OCCURS AT THE
END OF ROUNDS, NOT EACH MAP.
- Welcome Message: Set important information here for people to
see as they join your server.
- Bandwidth Limit: Based on your bandwidth connection, set the
appropriate limit to the information to and from your server.
- Internet/Local: Select if you want to start an Internet or Local
Area server.

MAPS:
- Game Mode: Select the game mode you wish to host: CONQUEST in
this demo. The full game will also provide CAPTURE THE FLAG,
TEAM DEATH MATCH and CO-OP.
- Map List: Select the maps you want to have in your server
rotation. Each map has been designed with a specific number of
players in mind. Keep that in mind when setting the maximum
number of players for your server. Feel free to experiment with
more or fewer.

THIS DEMO WILL FEATURE WAKE ISLAND - The full game will feature
16 levels including Omaha Beach, Battle of Midway, Stalingrad,
and the Battle of the Bulge.

NOTE: Depending on your hardware and bandwidth you may be need
to set the max players lower to limit lag. If you have a high-
end server with a bandwidth which allows 1MB or higher upload
you can experiment with setting the max number of players up to
32.

GAMEPLAY:
- Spawn Time: This sets the delay before the player can spawn.
- Start Delay: This sets the delay before players start each map.

views in vehicles.
- Nose Camera: Toggle this to allow players to turn off the cock-
pit view while in airplanes.
- Autoswitch teams: Toggle this to cause teams to switch sides at
the end of each round. NOTE: This doesn't occur after each map
restart but after each round restart.

IP SETTINGS
NOTE: This functionality is to be used if you are running
Battlefield 1942 on a dual-processor system. In order
to make this work do the following:
- Install the game as usual
- Make a copy of the installed directory
- Run one dedicated server from the original install
and another dedicated server from the copy.
- Detect Automatically: check this if you want the game to
check for the IP automatically.

==================================================================

LANDING CRAFT RAMPS
- When commanding a landing craft (the driver seat) use the arrow
keys up/down to lower and raise the ramp. This helps your team
clear the landing craft quickly.

CLEAR KEY-BINDING
- If you have mapped a key to a command in the Options section
you can clear it one of two ways: 1) You can map another key
to that command or 2) You can select that mapped key and press
the ESC to delete all keys bound to that command.

PLAYER LIST
- The in-game player list (TAB) will only show the first 20
players on a map. However, if your name will always be
displayed. If your score sets you as the 20+ player, your
name will be displayed as the 20th player on the list.

LANDMINES/DEMOLITION PACKS
- An engineer can disarm these by crouching and using the wrench.
When this is done, they will appear in your inventory up to the
maximum allowed.

SNIPER ZOOM
- To stay zoomed in while sniping, keep the FIRE button depressed
AFTER you shoot. As long as you keep that button pressed you
will remain zoomed and can see the chaos your shot caused. Once
you release the button, you will unzoom and reload.

COMMAND INTERFACE SPAM
- When you use the command interface too many times in a row which
could be considered as spamming, your interface will be disabled
for a short while.

YELLOW ICONS on MINIMAP
- When someone use the command interface their icon will flash in
yellow on the minimap for a brief moment. This is to give you
quicker feedback on their location and thereby the importance of
that message for you.

ALT-TAB
- Battlefield 1942 does not support the ALT-TAB functionality.

WinXP ISSUES
- Fast-User Switching is not supported by Battlefield 1942.
- Limited User accounts are not supported by Battlefield 1942, you
must have administrator access to install or uninstall Battle-
field 1942. If you are playing under a Limited User account, you
must use the Run as Administrator option.

RED SERVER NAMES
- Red server names indicate a password protected server.

==================================================================
Flight School 101
==================================================================
Are you having trouble flying? Do you consider those airplanes as
nothing more than flying coffins? Are your buddies making fun of
you while they fly upside-down underneath those bridges?

Well, read the following and soon they'll be the ones running for
cover when you appear in the skies overhead. If this is your first
time flying, you'll want to try the single-seat fighters first.
Then the dive-bombers and finally the B-17 Heavy Bomber. Good luck
and good hunting! Note that the B-17 will only be available in the
full game.

KEYBOARD FLYING
- Is the fine art of flying with the mouse eluding you? If so, try
the style preferred by the developer, DICE, keyboard kombat. You
can have a more stable flying experience by using the arrow keys
on your keyboard, without all the ups and downs of mouse flying.
And if that doesn't suit you, grab a joystick and try flying with
that. But be warned, this isn't a flight-simulator...so the game
won't support all of those nifty feature like a hat-switch and
whatnot.

MOUSE FLYING
- Is your natural inclination when flying to pull back or push
forward to go up? In either case, Battlefield 1942 supplies you
with the controls to do either. To toggle the invert function on/
off go to Main Menu>Options>Controls>AIR tab and check or uncheck
the INVERT MOUSE box.

MOUSE SENSITIVITY
- Setting the sensitivity of the mouse control can affect how easy
you control your airplane. To change this setting go to Main Menu>
Options>Controls>AIR tab and move the slider up or down. To see if
the setting suits you, try climbing to altitude and dive then pull
up abruptly. You can always PAUSE the game; press ESC to go the
main menu and change the setting on the fly. Press ESC to go back
in the game and see if it's how you like it.

BOMBS AWAY
- Dropping bombs is all about skill and putting the iron on the
spot. Practice makes perfect, but in general you'll always want
to drop that bomb sooner than you might think. The bomb will arc
forward because of momentum. Use the camera controls F11-12 to
see how they bombs drop.

COCKPIT VIEW
- While in the cockpit, hold the mouse-look button down (default
is Left SHIFT) and use the mouse to look around. Release the
button to go back to regular flying with the mouse.

NO COCKPIT VIEW
- If you want to really experience flying as it was meant to be...
press F9 when you are in the cockpit. This will turn the cockpit
view OFF (provided the server has Nosecam turned on). You can also
fly in 3rd person mode by pressing F10.


==================================================================
Troubleshooting
==================================================================

VIDEO CARD DRIVERS
- It is highly recommended to go to your video card manufacturer's
website and download updated drivers for your card.


SOUND CARD DRIVERS
- It is highly recommended to go to your sound card manufacturer's
website and download updated drivers for your card.

==================================================================
Other Issues
==================================================================

SOUND CARD
- Note that the game might not run if your system lacks a sound
card. Also, your soundcard must support DirectX 8.0. This
differs depending on operating system.


GAME RESOLUTION
- Changing resolution might affect the quality of the fonts in the
menu. The game operates best with the default resolution of
800x600x32.


DESKTOP RESIZING
- Some systems may not resize the desktop upon exiting the game.
The user can manually go into desktop properties and reset this.


KEYBOARD CONTROLS
- Some PC keyboards cannot recognize certain combinations of 3 or
more simultaneously pressed keys. This is an inherent problem
unrelated to Battlefield 1942.


EJECTING CD-ROM
- Do not eject the CD-rom while installing the game. This has
resulted in blue screen crashes on some systems.


CHANGING RESOLUTION WHEN HOSTING A GAME:
- When hosting a non dedicated server you should avoid changing
your settings as some clients may get disconnected while the
changes are being set.
